I am trying to do cuda development in an ESXI environment, so I installed a Quadro 5800 in my ESXI machine (Dell T7500). I did passthrough to the Windows 7 VM that I will be doing development in, but when I run GPU-Z or a cuda program, CUDA is not detected. What could be causing the GPU to show up in device manager, but not function as a CUDA device?
I installed the CUDA development tools which include the driver. Later, I will be trying to install windows directly on the system to see if it functions correctly.

Edit: I tested the GPU in a windows install directly on the machine and it functioned correctly. This leads me to believe it is a problem with the passthrough.

  • Were you able to resolve this, I have a similar issue – user75464 Feb 11 '18 at 12:38
  • I gave up and just put the cards in a different computer without ESXI. – Eric Johnson Feb 11 '18 at 13:17
